The Foundations of Music


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Sonata in C Minor, Op. 10, No. I
Molto Allegro e con brio; Molto Adagio; Finale (Prestissimo)
THIS is already on a noticeably bigger scale
-L than the Sonata played yesterday evening, although it does not take much longer in actual performance. It, too, begins its first principal tune with the notes of the common chord loaping restlessly upwards, and the second subject is in striking' contrast, broader and more smoothly flowing.
The chief tune of the slow movement, which comes next, repeats one phrnso, tho second time a note higher in tho scale ; Beethoven's early fondness for turns and ombellishments is evident in this movement too.
The last movement-there arc only three—is ft short Prestissimo whose principal tune is heard at the outset; again the second subject is bigger and more solid, and the working out of the movement is quite orthodox, except that just before the end there is an unexpected pause, after which, we pass into a vigorous little Coda'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
